Grace Under Pressure - theatre production



Grace Under Pressure - a play about tackling mistreatment of doctors

According to Beyond Blue’s 2013 ‘National Mental Health Survey of Doctors and Medical Students’ report, rates of clinical depression and anxiety, suicidal ideation and suicidal behaviour among this population are twice the national average. Bullying, harassment and ‘teaching by humiliation’ are a common experience in hospitals, particularly for students and interns.

Grace Under Pressure is a play that examines the workplace and training cultures that are making young doctors and nurses sick and putting patient lives at risk. It has been developed from interviews with doctors and nurses at various stages of their careers.

ABOUT THE PLAY: “Grace under Pressure” is a play about the workplace and training culture of doctors and nurses in a sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart breaking but always compelling piece of theatre

Grace Under Pressure opens a conversation about these often-taboo issues. It will be an important public exploration into an often-toxic medical culture, as well as a compelling, confronting, hopeful and deeply moving work of theatre.

The audience is invited to peek behind the scenes of this fascinating world of caring professionals. You may be shocked at what you find! The play runs from 25-28 October at the Seymour Centre, Chippendale. “Grace Under Pressure” is part of the Great Ideas Performance Series 2017.
